Now as bad as cancer can be, it is always good to see the positive and try to do the best with what we have at hand. Currently there is no specific cure for cancer beyond traditional medical therapy that brings with it side effects and that also sometimes becomes insufficient to fight against the tumor, so the purpose of this article is to give you tools to complement the therapy medical or what is better initiate the changes towards a healthier lifestyle where the prevention of diseases such as cancer and others is the greatest reward, well let’s begin.
Among the alternatives offered by nature are the fruits and vegetables that are an important part of a balanced diet and that are one of the most powerful weapons when implementing nutritional plans for specific purposes, all this is due to the high nutritional value of these foods, now fruits and vegetables are very nutritious we know that, from small we are taught that we should eat our plate of vegetables but as we grow up and we are adults we forget about that, curiously not ?.
Well already being clear this I formally present our topic today: Juices, and I do not talk about the bottled juices that you buy in the supermarket or in the cafeteria rich in sugars and preservatives, no, I speak to you of 100% natural juices, Oh yes something as simple as a juice, can do wonders in your body and believe me not only what I say, say and sustain the millions of people who consume them daily and enjoy their kindness in addition to all the books and articles about them.
You will ask: Why can juices offer so many benefits and how? Well, it turns out that the protagonists in these juices are the vegetables and the fruits both have high levels of antioxidants, minerals and proteins in the case of several green vegetables. There is a wide variety of juices all with many benefits, today I bring you green juices.
They are drinks that combine the properties of fruits and vegetables as I mentioned earlier, according to nutritionists to make a quality green juice it is necessary that at least 2 ingredients are present such as:
Spinach and aloe combined with various fruits.
The preparation of the juices can vary according to the recommendations of the professionals but all have great health benefits in common. In nutritional terms they provide vitamins such as: A, B, C and K and are an important source of folic acid, calcium, iron, chlorophyll, beta carotene, quercetin among many other nutrients.
What is the effect of these nutrients on our body?
Vitamin A: It is beneficial for the bone system, acts in the regeneration of epithelium, skin and mucous membranes, improves vision, keeps your hair, nails and teeth healthy and strengthens your immune system, something great if you are going through a chronic disease such as cancer , diabetes, etc.
Vitamin C: It has the great ability to intervene in the processes of tissue regeneration in our body, it is necessary for the synthesis of collagen, thus helping the processes of wound healing, not in vain is the main ingredient in cosmetic creams to avoid aging and in the medical creams indicated for healing, in addition to all the above helps the maintenance of bones, teeth and strengthens the immune system oh if you say goodbye to seasonal colds !.
Calcium: It is responsible for regulating the heart rate as it is vital in the process of relaxation and contraction of the heart, is necessary in the blood coagulation system and essential for respiratory functions, and finally intervenes in the processes of synthesis and resorption that is.
Chlorophyll: It is a substance present in plants and is responsible for the green pigmentation of plants, it intervenes in cell activation, favoring the reduction of free radicals formed by oxidative processes.
There are several traditional ways of preparation:
Liquefied Method: Consists in pouring all the juice ingredients in a blender until a homogeneous mixture is obtained.
Centrifuge Method: It is perhaps the best known to prepare green juices, this is the basic principle of operation of the electric extractors, in these the ingredients are crushed with the rotating blades, separating the ingredients of the juice.
The disadvantage of the liquefied and centrifuged method is that both are with blades and when they are heated tend to oxidize vegetables and fruits, therefore it is recommended that the process of liquefied or centrifuged be as short as possible and thus reduce the oxidative process of the ingredients.
Method of cold pressing: It is considered the most effective method when making green juices because it maintains the properties of the ingredients, this method consists of subjecting the vegetables and fruits to high pressure levels in such a way that this pressure allows to separate the juice of the fiber.
How are the juices prepared?
Once you know the methods and the main ingredients it is time to start the preparation:
Choose a base: Celery, cucumber, carrots.
Choose 1 or 2 kinds of green leaves: Kale, spinach, lettuce, parsley, chard.
Choose a fruit: Apple, pineapple, strawberries, pears; these will sweeten your smoothie and add a rich flavor, when choosing the fruit, take into account that they are fruits rich in water since they help to give smoothness and smoothness to your juice.
You will notice that there is not a specific amount of each ingredient and you will think that it is not a big thing but if it is, when it comes to making your juice, have a piece of each ingredient as a quantity reference, this will be enough.
It is important to know that these juices to be 100% natural do not contain preservatives that are easily oxidized and in doing so they lose part of their properties so consume them immediately after their preparation or in the next 20 minutes, after that time they begin to oxidize if it is not possible to consume them in that time store them in glass containers and consume them as soon as possible.
